Are you ready for a new boating season? Help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS). Remember to purchase your 2022 AIS permit online before heading to the boat launch. You will receive your permit after your vessel passes inspection. Stations at Bloedel Donovan Park and Lake Samish open on Saturday, April 23. Other Lake Whatcom inspection stations will open soon.
